Below are a few responses to the following question:
What long-term effects of your child's early literacy instruction have been demonstrated to date?

Response

There is no doubt this is a life changing opportunity for children. What we have observed to date is that our student is very articulate, even beyond her older siblings. She is an incredible speller; her grasp of sounds/spelling that don't follow any rules is impressive. She also picked up some basic math skills without even realizing it. She began "learning how to learn on purpose" as a 3 year old and had a blast doing it. She entered kindergarten ready for more. It's given her an opportunity as a leader, but also by choosing a charter school (Montessori) that is equipped to accommodate kids who are blazing ahead (or struggling, or somewhere in between), she is able to grow alongside her peers and maintain the momentum she gained through Clara Fields -- She's been given an amazing gift. We are so grateful to the Adams' for their commitment and sacrifice. Most of us recognize shortfalls and gripe. These people found a way to make change. Their positive influence and impact on this community, and our family, is immeasurably long-term.

My child is the only kindergartener who goes to another classroom to participate in formal reading class. We chose Montessori because they are equipped to handle children developing outside the box.

She has much more confidence and can read better then most 1-2 graders. She loves to read! I wish you continued this program in summers for 1,2 grades.
